Winslow Homer by John Wilmerding( Book )

10 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within recent years, several major exhibitions of Homer's work have been mounted, and more modest books have dealt with special aspects of his career, such as his graphic art and his watercolors. The time now seems due for a fresh synthesis of these foregoing treatments in order to bring into new balance the unevenly accumulated information on different parts of Homer's life and career. Yet, the present study does not purport to uncover much new biographical material. Most of the facts of the artist's life are already available in the existing bibliography, and every Homer biographer has had to begin and end with the painter's cultivated reticence and guarded seclusion. -- Preface

American light : the luminist movement, 1850-1875 : paintings, drawings, photographs by John Wilmerding( Book )

22 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While many people are familiar with the Hudson River "School" of art, far fewer realize that out of that movement came the American Luminist movement of the mid 19th Century. While some of the Hudson River artists were also luminists, most of their landscapes are not. The Luminists generally painted smaller landscapes than the HRS artists, they are always extremely peaceful scenes, often rather mono-tone in color, and most of all sublime. That is, the solid mountains or hills in the distance faded into the vapor of the atmosphere, which captured the light of the sun or moon, giving the picture a luminist look. This book first gives the qualifications of Luminist painting. Then, it follows many of the artists and describes their focus on capturing the light of Nature in their landscapes. Many - even most - of the greatest Luminists were highly concerned with the Spiritual and trying to show God's Hand in the world through their paintings."--Amazon

William M. Harnett by William Michael Harnett( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his short but productive career, William Michael Harnett (1848-1892) became the great American master of trompe-l'oeil still-life painting. His works, popular with the public long before they were appreciated by the art critics, "fool the eye" with their convincing, sharp-edged definition of form and careful rendering of materials. This volume provides the first thorough examination of Harnett's career and its significance for the history of American art. Twenty-two essays by a roster of leading scholars examine three major areas: Harnett's relationship to his contemporaries, among them painters, patrons, critics, and the general public; his formative training and experiences; and the meaning of his themes for the audience that supported him. These essays discuss not only Harnett's own technical skill and artistic development, but also the aesthetic issues of illusionism and trompe l'oeil, Harnett's relationship to other painters working in a similar vein, and the implications of his subject matter. Ultimately, the essays help to resolve the question of how Harnett's technically skillful imitations of real objects fit the definition of "art" and what his popularity says about the culture in which he worked and lived. Each of the editors has written an essay for this volume; other contributors include Henry Adams, Maria Chamberlin-Hellman, Nicolai Cikovsky, Jr., Elizabeth Jane Connell, William H. Gerdts, Elizabeth Johns, Judy L. Larson, David M. Lubin, Chad Mandeles, Roxana Robinson, and Paul J. Staiti. The forty-nine works reproduced in full color and arranged chronologically provide the first comprehensive survey of Harnett's work. A bibliography, chronology, and thorough index add to the reference value of this handsome volume

Richard Estes by Richard Estes( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Estes, the American "king of photorealism," is regarded as one of the most important witnesses to the New York urban landscape. The crisp, clarity of Estes' paintings is reminiscent of photography, yet upon closer inspection his work reveals elements and perspectives that do not exist in reality. Like the artist Red Grooms, he is a true New York artist; Estes views the shop windows and street signs as his subjects, and gives his own unique perspective of city life. His hyper-crisp, people-less streetscapes have more to do with minimalism and realism than with traditional landscape painting. The book illustrates his fifty years of work and includes many recently completed paintings, published here for the first time. Author John Wilmerding is one of the most respected and widely known authorities on American art, and he takes a fresh look at this significant realist painter. The text covers the artist's themes and techniques and the inspiration of other artists such as Vermeer, Canaletto, Frederic Church, Edward Hopper, and Walker Evans. This book encompasses Estes' entire oeuvre and is an essential resource for all collectors of his work.--Book jacket
